Curating sustainability into
the Modern Workspace 

Sustainability affects every part of the communities and organisations we live and work in. As the curators of your modern workspaces, we partner with architects, interior designers and builders to deliver high-performance furniture and workspace solutions. 

Each part of the Zenith business is built on sound principles of sustainability, from materials selection and manufacturing, through to our methods of distribution, installation, implementation and recycling.

A Holistic Approach to Sustainability

A Holistic Approach to Sustainability

A thriving business is a sustainable business because it creates environments that support the long term health, wellbeing and ambitions of the people it employs and the communities it supports. 

By enabling you to create environments which support the long term health and wellbeing of your people and the local community, we ensure the long term viability and relevance of your business.

Introducing Zenith
Sustainability in action 

Zenith Rx4 is our holistic sustainability program. Inspired by the three pillars of sustainability it enables us to develop a holistic approach to sustainability. 

It ensures we stay focused on the principles of Responsibility, Relevance, Recycling and Reduction  through each part of our vertically integrated business model. Plus, it aligns with our sustainability approach with our clients and supply chain partners to ensure sustainability at Zenith has a genuine impact on the community. 

Responsibility. Relevance. Recycling. Reduction.

Responsibility. Relevance. Recycling. Reduction.

Responsibility in materials selection and design leads to the extended Relevance of our products and solutions, which in turn, extends their life-cycle.

Our business wide Recycling policy works hand in hand with our commitment to Reduce our use of new materials in favour of renewables, and to reuse wherever possible.

Commitment to Recycling

Local Zenith staff take the lead in developing programs for returning packaging to our manufacturing teams for re-use, and developing their own programs for reducing waste. Polytec and Laminex recycle initiatives ensure our products can be effectively recycled. Products are designed to simplify disassembly, and recycled aluminium is used for non structural components. 

Commitment to Responsibility

Our commitment to responsibility ensures every stage in our vertically integrated business model delivers on our sustainability targets. By re-evaluating and redeveloping our supply chain, it’s now profitable for us to ethically source sustainably forested timber, and the use plant-based and water-based materials in our products and packaging. 

Commitment to Relevance

Relevance works hand-in-hand with responsibility, because it ensures the materials we use and the products and solutions we produce have longer-term relevance to our clients. By applying smart design thinking to our product development, we ensure products are ‘Better by Design’, which encourages our clients to use them longer. 

Commitment to Reduction

Through better materials selection, more efficient and effective manufacturing and distribution, extending the life-cycle of all our products by being ‘better by design’ and increasing the use of reusable and sustainable packaging, the 4xRs combine to have a cumulative ‘reducing’ impact throughout our business.

Local programs that are making a genuine difference.

We’ve selected some of the key initiatives we’re currently running to show how Zenith’s Rx4 programs are delivering tangible results in our local showrooms and communities.

Initiative #1
Plant a Tree

In alignment with our central mission of increasing sustainability through best practises and initiatives, the Jac One Tree program in partnership with ONETREEPLANTED.ORG, is an environmental offset project where a tree is planted for every Jac purchased.

As part of Zenith’s reciprocal commitment to the communities in which we operate, our tree planting initiative has 3 areas of operation: Australia, New Zealand and Asia.

Australia -Our current focus is tree replenishment on farmlands around the Stirling Ranges in Western Australia, with the objective of biodiversity conservation, habitat restoration and the expansion of crucial wildlife corridors.

New Zealand -The New Zealand Jac One tree program is focused on environmental restoration in the Waingake forests of New Zealand. This project aims to restore native forests to support biodiversity and vital ecosystems unique to the region.        

Asia - The project's primary objective is to undertake enrichment planting with indigenous tree species in Magallanes Juban Forest Reserve in Sorsogon Province in The Philippines.

Zenith aims to continue the restoration of vital ecosystems through the One Tree Program, and we thank the design community and all of our clients for their support of this initiative.

Chipping away at waste: Zenith’s wood recycling commitment

Zenith are pleased to announce a new initiative where the timber offcuts from our Kingsgrove Manufacturing Facility will be given another life!

Our wood offcuts will be used as raw materials in the manufacture of new particleboard products.  

Many waste disposal methods threaten our environment, but through sustainable recycling, we conserve natural resources and decrease the harm we cause to the planet.

At Zenith, our business wide recycling policy works hand in hand with our commitment to reduce and reuse wherever possible.
